Wart Removal

Warts are benign (non-cancerous) skin growths, which are most commonly found on the hands and feet. These growths are caused by viruses and there are up to 60 known wart-causing viruses current in existence.

Warts are very contagious as the affected skin cells release the viruses, so good hygiene is of an up-most importance when you are suffering from a wart.

How does wart removal work?

The wart removal treatment at sk:n uses a Pulsed Dye laser to target and destroy it without damaging the healthy skin around it. The laser cuts off the blood supply to the wart, thus safely taking the wart out of the picture.

How will I feel during wart removal?

Although you may feel some mild discomfort, the laser does not generally cause any pain and sometimes, patients with sensitive skin benefit from the use of anaesthetic cream to numb the area during treatment.

Is wart removal the right treatment for me?

Even if your warts have failed to respond to other treatments in the past, you are very likely to enjoy great results with laser wart removal. Particularly stubborn warts may require 5 or more treatments, but it is very rare that a wart refuses to budge completely.

What happens after wart removal?

Complications are not expected; you can continue with your normal routine, including bathing normally. You might notice some darkening of the skin where the wart used to be, but this is temporary.
